Hello,

I have a problem with SDLX .itd files and not sure how to resolve it. I need to do a translation into Armenian and I set ArialLatArm font going to View-Set Translation font however I can't type in Armenian in the right column (it types in English).

Does anyone know what the problem is?

Thanks in advance,

Vlad

Steps before using SDL Edit Jan 27, 2008

I wonder did you set the target language when you create the *.itd file into Armenian or not.
I use Japanese fonts and the same problem occurs when I did not set *.itd file target language carefully.
You may need a UTF-8 coding for target fonts if you still cannot see Armenian in translation. I also met with this problem when my target language is German, French etc. or when I use copy/paste function to input from MS Word texts.

Soonthon L.

Hi Soonthon,

Thanks for your reply. The thing is that it was the client who created .itd files for translation and send them to me. As I can see from File-Properties - the target encoding is UTF-8 and this is a Unicode encoding. I am just not sure what the problem is.

Regards,
Vlad
